So-called Canada. A CN rail crossing in Saint-Lambert, Quebec is currently being blocked. The track connects Montreal to Eastern Canada as well as to the United States. We are acting in solidarity with the Wet’suwet’en who are fighting against Coastal Gas Link’s proposed energy corridor through their territory and whose land was invaded by the RCMP in January.
Originally published by Montreal Counter-Information.
Since the beginning of the RCMP’s invasion, many different types of solidarity blockades have multiplied across the country. We are inspired by the courageous acts of Indigenous resistance we have witnessed, including the ongoing rail blockades in Kahnawake and Tyendinaga. We have set up this new encampment blocking CN tracks as we believe these land and water defenders should not have to fight alone.
We invite all those who are able to join us at the site of this encampment. The blockade is set up a block south of rue rue Saint-Georges and ave St Charles. You can get there by taking the 2 or 54 bus south from Longueuil metro (bring change for an extra fare). We encourage everyone to bring very warm clothes, water, food, and any winter camping gear you have access to.
We will continue to block the railroad tracks until the RCMP leaves Wet’suwet’en territory. We encourage others to take action in order to force the government to accept the demands of the Wet’suwet’en hereditary chiefs.
